Purpose: By interviewing health professionals, students have the opportunity to experience and understand the lives and careers of caregiving team members in a hospice department have developed. They explore ways work activities reflect self-other relations, and to what extent professionals' reflection and practice may empower patients and their families. Students are able to assess critical issues that are part of the future challenges they face as medical professionals. Material and Method: An oral history approach is adopted in this service learning class to investigate the history of the hospice department at Taipei Medical University Hospital. Students learn to use Jonsen's four topic approach for analysis. In the 2012 spring term, eight medical students interview eight hospice care providers and finish all interview transcripts. Findings and discussion: This project find that a service learning curriculum design integrating oral history techniques with clinical ethical analysis successfully lead junior medical students to become active learners. Their performance not only demonstrated very in-depth and rich competence in humanistic reflection, but also presented their commitment and ability to create opportunities for learning basic and clinical medicine in their premedical years.
